Hail, The New Caesars!

The 50th Anniversary Series

From the Feast of Bacchanal Buffet to the Opening of the World’s First Nobu Hotel and the Views of VISTA Cocktail Lounge, the Reinvention of Caesars Palace Continues

Las Vegas is a city in constant flux. While some resorts are imploded, others build on history and reinvent themselves. Celebrating its 50th anniversary on August 5, 2016, Caesars Palace is as fresh and new as ever.

Best in Dining

The past decade has seen Chefs Guy Savoy, François Payard and Gordon Ramsay arrive, and New York dining institutions Rao’s, Old Homestead Steakhouse and Serendipity 3 all open at the property. But changes have been fast and furious over the past couple years.

Since the opening of the world’s first Nobu Hotel in April 2013, Caesars Palace has renovated its sports book, poker room and food court; introduced Searsucker and three upscale lounges—FIZZ Las Vegas, Lobby Bar and VISTA Cocktail Lounge; opened OMNIA Nightclub; and added Mariah Carey and Reba, Brooks & Dunn to its growing list of resident entertainers.

“We are obsessed with remaining fresh and relevant,” says Caesars Palace president Gary Selesner, who explains the importance of covering all aspects of the resort experience starting with dining.

“We will never stop reinventing Caesars Palace.” —Gary Selesner

“Restaurants are critical,” he says. “Our guests have discriminating tastes. They expect the highest quality, most variety and best execution—whether from our collection of the most famous chefs in the world, the 500-dish Bacchanal Buffet, or the pizza, hamburgers, ramen or tacos in our Forum Food Court.”

Cocktail Kingdom

The resort’s focus lately has been on nightlife; OMNIA Nightclub boasts the world’s top deejays; VISTA Cocktail Lounge brings city skylines to its LED screens; and Lobby Bar features a relaxing lounge serving creative cocktails.

“Nightlife is the new frontier in Las Vegas,” says Selesner. “The younger generation is demanding compelling venues that engage all of their senses. I am proud to say with OMNIA, VISTA Cocktail Lounge and the new Lobby Bar, we have created concepts that satisfy all the demands of the younger generation, as well as guests who look for quality in their libations and excellence in service.”

Entertainment Capital of the World

The resort’s impressive roster of performers in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace continues to grow. Elton John, Rod Stewart and Céline Dion, who just returned to stage with a refreshed show, are now joined by Reba, Brooks & Dunn—onstage together for the first time since the trio toured in the 1990s—and Mariah Carey singing her number-one hits.

“The Colosseum at Caesars Palace remains the chief draw in Las Vegas.” —Atlanta Journal-Constitution
